The Midlands ICT Cluster with the Midlands Regional Skills Forum are conducting a Skills Survey to identify Critical Vacancies, Key Skills Needs, and Levels of Upskilling required to ensure alignment among employers in the region, education & training providers, and regional supporting agencies.
The Survey relates to ICT and Digital Skills, and is open to all companies in the region who utilise ICT or Digital technologies or soutions within their businesses – not just to Tech companies.
The survey should take less than 5 minutes, and will provide vital feedback in terms of the work done across the region in supporting training, skills and education in ICT Skills.
